"The bus is ubiquitous.
Every country on the planet has some form of bus transportation.
A true utilitarian form of transport that for a century has serviced the whole spectrum of social strata.
Some 80% of all public transport passengers worldwide are carried by buses.
An efficient mode of transport, which is cheap, flexible and, in many cases, tailored to the needs of users both in terms of capacity and speed.
From an economic, environmental and social point of view, the bus still remains the most universal solution for a balanced and sustainable urban development
- and something we take for granted.
These images capture the very essence of the travelling bus passenger and the machines that convey them."
